July Darbuka Challenge
Hello my rhythmic friends. Day 18 it is!
There will be no audio file today. Today is just another day to keep on keeping on. Most of you know would have noticed the time it takes for some of these techniques to manifest. As my teacher would always say, 'Yavash, Yavash.' Yes, you have heard me say this many times and it could not be more poignant at this time. This tells me something very important: That if you keep on playing or "chipping away" as they say, you will arrive at your destination. It may be a long journey but you will arrive. So, make sure you enjoy the journey! This is the most important thing!!
I am seeing some fantastic improvements in my playing and I find this very exciting indeed. It sometimes feels like you will never get there but this is only due to the slow speed that we are developing at. But, 'one day' it just comes together. I think of this now as the 'Yavash Effect' ;-)
Below are just a few ideas from Day 18 last year. Enjoy.
